Hourglass Raven Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass Raven Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “orange-red.” It’s a vibrant, bold orange-red that’s much more orange than red. Nonetheless, it is extremely bright and attention-grabbing! The color is not that unusual; there are numerous orange-red lipsticks. MAC Strut Your Stuff is a smidgen lighter. Guerlain Genna is very similar but has a sheen. Estee Lauder Extravagant Red is similar but has gold shimmer. MAC Ruffian Red is less orange. OCC Stalker is quite similar.

Revlon Radiant (Blue Mosaic) Nail Lacquer

Revlon Radiant (Blue Mosaic) Nail Lacquer ($4.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a blue-tinted clear base with blue glitter and larger green, silver, and blue hexagon-shaped glitter. It totally reminded me of the glitter in Deborah Lippmann–if you used Radiant (Blue Mosaic) over a blue-black base, you’d get pretty close to the overall shade. The major difference is Radiant has a mostly clear base, while Deborah Lippmann is a colored (opaque) base. That would, of course, make Radiant more versatile, since you could layer it over any number of polishes.

China Glaze Pink Plumeria Nail Lacquer

One of the least neon shades in China Glaze Summer Neons is Pink Plumeria Nail Lacquer ($7.00 [MSRP] for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “light pink with gold shimmer.” It’s a pink-coral that almost leans orange depending on the lighting. It has very fine gold micro-shimmer–in natural light, it almost looks like a cream finish, but there is definitely shimmer in it. OCC Extravaganza is pinker but has a similar brightness and shimmer content. China Glaze Sugar High is a smidgen pinker and has a cream finish. MAC Impassioned is more orange. Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to HAVe Fun Nail lacquer is more orange. Illamasqua Lament is a bit darker, more orange, and has no shimmer.
